Re: Old Topic revisited - unused aircraft status decline

The only upside I can think of with my 180 day system is there is no fee if you just fly each plane once within 180 days to show they remain "current". Instead of adding bonus flight revenue to offset landing fee's ( if you charge every plane, flown or not) why not add "performance incentives" as pa...

Re: Old Topic revisited - unused aircraft status decline

KIS? Keep It Simple - just use airport population numbers already in the system as your database for airport size, establish Class I, II, III airport sizes and set flat fee for each, a multiplier factor times the aircraft max ZFW. I like the idea of a status drop for parked planes, maybe that's all ...

Re: Add Aircraft not Working

I'm not sure I know what the "all aircraft" function is .... I'm sure Tim does not know either. However our problem stems from having everything from sightseeing biplanes to jumbo jets. "All Aircraft" will not work due to range limitations obviously. In retrospect I should have split Wrangler Air Ch...

Re: Add Aircraft not Working

YUP my thoughts too...... becoming of "victim of one's own success" where either size matters (too many planes for one route) OR we somehow got an airport into the system that really should not accept those size aircraft OR somehow got a route installed that is out of the aircraft range. There's abo...

Re: Add Aircraft not Working

Yet I can select airport of my choice / all aircraft / then check routes I want the 717 inserted to and that works just fine. So that's my workaround for now vs. "marrying" a new aircraft to an existing ones' routes.

Re: Add Aircraft not Working

Thanks

Yes we have become a monster - 76 different types 126 total aircraft 50 aircraft in some of those routes ... that may be the "limit never going to be reached" in the code. LOL

Re: Add Aircraft not Working

UPDATE: There must be some flight route in my group that the system does not like so it kicks all edits out. I just tried "KSFO / all aircraft / checked the boxes on flights I wanted to edit / edit flights / add a/c / B717-200 and it worked just fine. Weird

Add Aircraft not Working

We just picked up a Boeing B717-200 and I wanted to add it to the routes we fly with our DC-93 / MD-82. I went to Flight Plans, selected all airports/DC-93. Then select all Edit Flights Add AC B717 system will not accept it I get continue but no note of flights edited and B717 does not appear in tho...

Re: Old Topic revisited - unused aircraft status decline

Yes please take the time to get your flights in Joe!

I've seen what happens when people get burned out doing nothing but admin work, that's how our bossman started Fly Vegas, all he did at old VA was paperwork cause it was huge.

Old Topic revisited - unused aircraft status decline

After being involved in some other various simulations, I have noticed one thing about FSA that stands out is once an airline buys a plane, there is no cost to keep it, even if it sits for years on the ramp being nothing but a weed shade. I think a fair and realistic status hit on all aircraft based...
